Lazio vs Cagliari Prediction & Match Preview

Lazio vs Cagliari
Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 22 December 2018
Kick-Off at 11:30 UK
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).

Lazio have seen a very troubled spell of form start midway through November and they now have a seven-game winless streak across competitions behind them, where Atalanta were the last to snatch the important points with a single goal from Duvan Zapata at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia.

Biancocelesti have thus earned just four points in their last five league outings and sit two points behind 4th placed Milan, failing to capitalize on the Rossoneri’s slip-ups. They’ve been scoring more goals at home ground, though, and Simone Inzaghi will now hope they can finally make it count against mid-table rivals!

Cagliari come into the match with a 0-1 loss to Napoli now behind them but it only ended a five-game unbeaten streak for them – where they beat Chievo and held off SPAL, Torino, Frosinone, and Roma. They now look for another solid challenge and while we do believe we’re in for a side motivated to leave Rome unbeaten, it’s very questionable if this will be enough to actually do so – even against Lazio struggling for consistency.

Lazio vs Cagliari: Head-to-head

  • Lazio have earned wins in all of the sides’ last seven head-to-head clashes at this ground.
  • Cagliari have been more challenging at Sardegna Arena, last seeing a 2-2 draw there in March.
  • We have seen three or more goals in five of the last six matchups.

Lazio vs Cagliari: Prediction

We will now back Lazio to finally return to the winning ways but we hope for a solid challenge from the visitors too, as we stick our necks out for a Home win & a YES on Both teams to score – which combines to a very good-looking 2.87.

Indeed, we have seen Biancocelesti struggle to keep it together at the back and slip-ups at the back have proven costly on more than one occasions. With that in mind, we now expect another high-scoring head-to-head clash and we’ll also back Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.57.

  • Home win & BTTS @ 2.87
